2014 RyanMan Triathlon!

My name is Austin LaSource, I am a husband, a father, and a triathlete. In 2014 I was training to compete in my first full distance Ironman race in Chattanooga, Tennessee when I received the news. Ryan, at that time my 15-month old son, had relapsed and was now in his second fight against Leukemia. At that point I did what any father would; I turned all of my attention to helping my son fight this terrible disease. Little did I know at the same time a group of friends were working behind the scenes to help me reach my goal of completing a 140.6 distance triathlon.

Ryanman was born. I, along with dozens of supporters finished the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and the 26.2 mile run in the inaugural 2014 Ryanman. The support and buzz around this race was so great that we had to keep it going. Ryanman Triathlon brings a shorter distance course, and allows hundreds of people the chance to not only complete a tough challenge of conquering a 70.3 mile course (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run), but also to bring awareness and help the fight against childhood cancer.

Ryan succumbed to his fight against cancer on June 3, 2016. After fighting Leukemia four times in a short 3 years of life, Ryan is finally at peace. To keep up to date with the LaSources and share memories of Ryan, follow their facebook page, Ryan's Journey - Leukemia Support Page.

My name is Austin LaSource and I am a Ryanman…are you?

Ryanman would not be possible if it weren't for all the volunteers. The volunteers can make a good race into a great race. We will need volunteers throughout the entire day.

A full list of volunteer jobs along with descriptions and times are on the registration website. If your group would like to work an aid station please register everyone and then send an email to listing everyone in your group, and we will make sure you are all assigned together on race day. If you have already signed up to volunteer and now can not meet that obligation please email and we will update your status.
